Implement automatic creation and signing of .sxg files, so edge CDN servers (e.g. hosted by Google) can preload pages to users.

We must not have any Google Fonts blocking the critical rendering path.

Google does provide a solution for this:

(48 credits = 8 hours or $326.08)

We can do responsive images simply using something like width: 100% in CSS or width="100%" in HTML.

This makes things mobile-friendly, but it makes things less-friendly performance-wise as it requires a page reflow once the image metadata (width and height specifically) loads.

Ideally we would be abl…

See comments for discussion of formats.
For video, we should support metadata detection (width, height, length) for whatever container format becomes common.

If CSS/JS files are consistently used together, they can be merged.

Previously we tried to automatically detect what CSS/JS files were used on the home page. However, it was over-complex and unstable when caching is involved, making it very difficult to debug and making the code horrible.

A better ap…

They offer a free tier (I don't believe they did so before).
They provide support for defining terms... so we could provide some kind of editable master-list of terms that should not be translated.

Current LDAP support just assumes the original LDAP protocol, with no encryption layer.

PHP has functionality for STARTTLS:

It's undocumented, but usage seems straight forward.

An option (or even unofficial hidden option) could be added to s…

See Safari's announcement:
https://webkit.org/blog/8718/new-webkit-features-in-safari-12-1/

You can make a website light/dark based on media queries. This would be a really cool feature for Composr's default theme.

Currently it's non-standardised.

What is exciting to me is that this may be cool e…

At this time I think only Safari supports it, so it's very early days. It is interesting though.
